Additive increase multiplicative decrease (AIMD) algorithm is the prevailing algorithm for congestion avoidance and control in the Internet. Reducing the end-to-end delays and enhancement of the link utilization are the important goals of this algorithm. In this work, we continue to study the performance of the New-AIMD (additive increase multiplicative decrease) mechanism as one of the core protocols for TCP, to avoid and control the congestion. We want to evaluate the effect of using the AIMD algorithm after developing it, which we called the New-AIMD algorithm, to find a new approach to measure the end-to-end delay and bottleneck link utilization and use the NCTUns simulator to obtain the results after making the modification for the mechanism. We will use the DropTail mechanism as the active queue management mechanism (AQM) in the bottleneck router. After the implementation of our new approach with a different number of flows, we expect the end-to-end delay to be less when we measure the delay dependent on the throughput for the entire system. In addition, we will measure the bottleneck link utilization using this mechanism and expect to get high utilization for bottleneck link and avoid the collisions in the link.
Key words: Congestion control, TCP, AIMD, delay, link utilization.
